The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella - Emma Galvin, Stephenie Meyer The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner is a short novella that chronicles the life of a newborn vampire named Bree Tanner. I believe that the fate that has befallen this minor character in Eclipse has already been known by everyone, though how everything begins is a total mystery – until now. Acting more like a gap-filler, this book explains what happen before the war between this army of young vampires and the Cullens, how they were recruited and what kind of lies that was fed by their leaders to make sure that they follow their commands.While I liked reading the saga, I found that this book fell a bit flat for me. I know the main focus of this book is on Bree though I believe that Meyer could add more substance by elaborating on the other characters or her relationship with them as well. I truly need more for this book to totally grab my interest. All in all, this book is just OK for me but I’ve no doubt that those who really love the saga will find this book enjoyable as well.Taken from my book blog: The Bibliophile's Journal
